The team, led by principal investigator Dr David Jones, is seeking to appoint a suitably qualified Post-Doctoral Researcher to develop new chemical applications for triphenylphosphine oxide, a common organophosphorus waste product of the fine chemical industry.

There is scope to undertake a short industrial placement as part of this post, which can be incorporated into the overall training plan of the successful appointee.
